Description

Bringing together recent scholarship on the lives of Russian peasant women in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this pioneering work of social history covers such topics as family life in the countryside, woman's work, her sexuality, her marital and family positions, her experience of the Bolshevik Revolution, and her role in collectivized agriculture from its beginnings in the Stalin years through the Gorbachev era. Placing the peasant woman within the context of the peasant household and integrating, rather than separating out, the female experience in Russian rural communities, these essays contribute to a greater understanding of the development of Russian society as a whole.show more
